Equipment issues lead to auto accidents. That’s why consumers who own recalled cars should never ignore a recall.

Toyota has announced a campaign that targets vehicles over a fire risk. Consumers must not ignore this campaign, as it could put them in danger.

The 115,000 Lexus convertibles and sedans sold in the United States may experience fuel leaks. In this case, it could end up in a fire.

Models listed under the recall include: 2006 through 2013 IS 350, 2010 through 2014 IS 350C, and 2007 through 2011 GS 350 and GS 450h.

Toyota says that they can visit the toyota.com/recall website to learn whether their vehicle is in danger. If so, they should reach out to Lexus. Schedule a visit to a dealership where the staff will replace the fuel delivery pipe with an improved version.

Fire-Related Recalls Are Serious, Do Not Ignore This Campaign

We often urge our readers to stay on top of all auto recalls. We encourage them to check the SafeCar.gov website by using their car’s VIN to look for open recalls. This campaign is a great example of a serious recall.

Issues that lead to fires can impose a variety of risks. They include fiery accidents, and others. That means that even if parked, a vehicle listed under a fire-related recall may be a risk.

If your car has a problem, ask Toyota whether you’re at risk until the company fixes the car. And if you have to do anything special to prevent a fire until they install a new part.
